How to spawn the three dragons: Dinraal, Naydra, and Farosh.

Recommended gear:

  • Flamebreaker Armor Set**

  • Snowquill Armor Set**

  • Zora Armor Set**

  • Thunder Helm or Rubber Armor Set**


** indicates the armor has been upgraded twice by the Great Fairy to gain the set bonuses Fireproof, Unfreezable, Swim Dash Stamina, and Electric proof.

PLEASE NOTE: No matter which of the dragons and armor sets you are wearing to get the immunity to the projectiles they spawn around them, if you glide into the dragon's body you will catch fire, freeze, or get zapped.

The dragons spawn shards that have various effects when mixed with elixirs and are used to upgrade several armor sets and can also be sold for high amounts of Rupees/Mon.

The item you get from the dragons depends on the area you shoot them with an arrow. You can only get ONE item per encounter so if you miss or need multiples you will need to start the cycle again.
ItemBody Part to Shoot
Shard of ( ) ScaleBody
Shard of ( ) ClawFoot
Shard of ( ) FangMouth
Shard of ( ) HornHorn/Crest (above the eyes at the top of the head)



Dinraal:

There is a stable next to the Tabantha Great Bridge, sleep/wait there until night.

Throw on the full Flamebreaker armor set and run up the side of the canyon on the same side as the stable is on.




Between 9PM and Midnight the dragon Dinraal can be found flying through the canyon.

Glide down and shoot him with an arrow in the region specified in the table above.





Naydra:
After getting the item that Dinraal drops in the canyon immediately swap to your Snowquill armor set and warp to the Spring of Wisdom (Jitan Sa'mi Shrine) at the Top of Mt. Lanayru.




Run out of the door and to the left, climbing over a boulder or two to get to the trail that leads up the mountain.

Follow the trail up (noted by white line in screenshot) until you see the second cluster of ice spires on your right.
1st cluster:

2nd cluster:


Climb this and jump off to glide down the mountain. About 1/3 of the way down the mountain you will see a large ice spire sticking up as you descend (light green line).

Land on this and turn around to look at the top of the mountain.

The music will change and you should see the giant blue dragon flying up the left side of the screen to the top of the mountain.

Climb as far back up (following the dark green line) as you can, the dragon will circle the top of the mountain once before descending down the right (towards the Lanayru Road to the west) side, so you have a little time.

Then glide off the side of the mountain towards Naydra's flight path on the south side of the mountain.

This is the hardest dragon to farm as the shards fly very far away and you must glide to the location to gather them.

The good news is if you glide near the dragon you can drop and glide again to catch her updraft multiple times to fly further.


Once you catch up to the item that spawns from Naydra swap to the Zora armor set and warp to the Shai Utoh Shrine directly behind the Lakeside Stable in the Faron region.








Farosh:


Run past the stable and up the path to the right.

Before the bridge you should see a small cliff outcrop.

Dive/glide from here and to the bottom of the waterfall directly in front of you.


Swim up the waterfall and glide to the ground on the right.

You should see Farosh on the far side of this and may even get caught in his updraft while gliding.

Pause and equip the Thunder Helm or Rubber armor set and then get closer to the dragon.



Collect your loot and repeat the cycle from the beginning as needed to collect all the necessary shards of dragon parts.

The release of the Switch is fast approaching. Here is my final update before March 3rd (unless something very important comes up) with some information I think is good to know.

According to an article from ArsTechnica: after eight hours in "sleep," a fully charged battery had only drained to 98 percent.
I'd say that's pretty damn good. If you were wondering just how long your Switch can stay in sleep mode when undocked, I think you have your answer.


JOY-CONS WILL CHARGE ON SWITCH EVEN WHEN THE SYSTEM ISN'T PLUGGED IN, AS LONG AS THE BATTERY IS FULL ENOUGH.
So as long as you get in the habit of slotting the Joy-Cons back into the Switch when you're done playing, you shouldn't ever have to worry about Joy-Cons dying on you. If you take the Switch on the go a lot, make sure you plug it in when you get home!


SWITCH DOES SUPPORT USB BATTERY PACKS FOR CHARGING ON THE GO.

The DigitalFoundry gang has confirmed the use of USB battery packs to charge your Switch on the go. If you're really worried about the amount of time the battery gives you on the go, you can grab one of these USB C battery packs and worry a lot less!




As for the battery life itself a reviewer has provided some valuable information:
- played Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for 2 hours and 39 minutes until a battery warning popped up
- the battery was at 1% when the warning popped up
- you could get another 9 minutes of playtime before the Switch entered sleep mode
- the default brightness setting was used
- the Switch needed four minutes of charging time before it could be turned on again
- after one hour of charging, the system’s battery power was at 45%
- it took 2 hours and 11 minutes to charge the battery to 90%
- it took 3 hours and 4 minutes until the battery was at 100%


Here are a couple of size comparisons of the Switch and Joycons to a GBA SP:




Also please keep in mind that the Joycon controller grip that converts the individual Joycons to a more traditional style controller DOES NOT charge the Joycons.


If you're worried about accidentally snapping the kickstand off, here's something to calm your fears. The kickstand is made to snap off, so you should be able to pop it back in with no issues as shown in the video below:





Last but not least, many GameStop locations are doing a midnight release of the switch.

We can finally say with certainty that the 6.2 inch touchscreen of the tablet will offer 720p resolution while the video output when docked is 1920 x 1080 and 60 frames per second.

Good news for anyone lamenting the loss of the headphone jack in their new smartphone – Nintendo is keeping it going here. Like the latest smartphones, though, the console’s 4310 mAh battery can’t be removed and any replacements will have to go through Nintendo. With this battery Nintendo say you can expect to get more than 6 hours of play on the move. That said, this is dependent on software and usage conditions so if you’re playing a game that’s more demanding like the new Legend of Zelda title, Nintendo say you can expect to get around 3 hours out of a single charge. Fully re-charging from empty will apparently take around 3 hours when the console’s in sleep mode.

Joy-cons have a battery life of around 20 hours.

It supports Wireless AC, the current standard. (Which is very fast)

There’s also good news on the expanded memory front; the console will support micro SD and SDHC cards as well as the previously confirmed SDXC cards which gives plenty of options.

Battery Life varies from 2-6 hours depending on the game you play:
















Joycon Grip Rails (Increase size and makes shoulder buttons easier to press when holding the Joycon controllers sideways)

Graphics comparison between Wii U and Switch versions:


There's actually a lot more of a difference than I expected.

First look at the Zoras:


Gorons revealed:


Horseback Combat:


A glimpse of one of the settlements:


If you look closely at the right side of this screenshot you can see a shrine on a small island in the ocean:


What appears to be Castle Town being ravaged by Guardians:


Fire Breathing Lizolfos and Link wearing a lot of armor:


Some kind of giant mech/Guardian:

I enjoyed it quite a bit. I think uploading a new video every day is a good idea. There's going to be a lot of content you have there, especially if you're gonna do all 15 games. You should do FF Tactics as a bonus stream.

I've decided that 2017 is gonna be the year that I try the youtube thing. I only have a few videos up right now but I'll be adding more content at a steady pace and hopefully you enjoy it. I'm gonna try and play some of the more obscure games I have so I think it will be interesting.
